Samsung says Galaxy Note 9 and S9 are eligible for One UI 2.5 update


Last updated: August 21st, 2020 at 17:12 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy Note 20 is now shipping to customers worldwide. At the same time, Samsung is bringing One UI 2.5 to existing Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra owners in various European countries. But the roll-out won’t stop with the Galaxy S20 series. The One UI 2.5 update along with its new features will be made available for various other older devices that have been confirmed by Samsung today.

Samsung has revealed the list of devices that are now set to receive the One UI 2.5 update after the Galaxy S20 lineup. It names phones that you’d expect to make the list, such as the Galaxy S10 lineup and the Galaxy S10 Lite, the Galaxy Note 10 series including the Note 10 Lite, and the company’s foldables like the original Galaxy Fold and the Galaxy Z Flip.

Brace yourself: The Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 series made the list

Along with the aforementioned phones that you would expect to be eligible for One UI 2.5, Samsung’s official announcement surprisingly lists the Galaxy Note 9, the Galaxy S9, and the Galaxy S9+ as being queued up for receiving this latest version of One UI.

This is truly exciting news and you might be thinking that Samsung’s new three-year update policy has retroactively extended to the 2018 flagship phones. However, we wouldn’t be surprised if these devices have been added to the One UI 2.5 list by accident considering how uncertain Samsung was about bringing One UI 2.1 to the Galaxy S9 duo and the Galaxy Note 9, and how many months people had to wait for this development to conclude.

You could say that there is hope for the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 series to receive some One UI 2.5 features later down the line, but it’s too early to be certain of anything and a bit of skepticism might be healthy until Samsung sheds more light on the matter. We’ll keep you up to speed as soon as we find out more about Samsung’s update plans.
